Event Preview

For many, the Monaco Grand Prix is the flagship event on the Formula 1 calendar. The race has been staged annually since 1929, and it is considered to be one of the most prestigious motor races on the planet. Alongside the Indy 500 and 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Monaco Grand Prix makes up the Triple Crown of Motorsport.

Typically, the Monaco Grand Prix is staged on the last weekend of May, which coincides with a huge weekend of motorsport. The race is known for its narrow course lay out, with tight corners making it one of the most challenging in the world. Charles Leclerc’s heartbreak in his home race continued last year, as he started on pole, before finishing off the final podium.

Sergio Perez once again showed his street circuit excellence last year, as he finished clear of Carlos Sainz to take victory. The Mexican will be chasing victory this weekend to close the gap on Max Verstappen at the top of the Drivers’ Standings. Perez finished a distant second to his teammate in the recent Miami Grand Prix.

Verstappen won this race for the first time back in 2021, and Red Bull will be chasing a fourth win in five years in the Monaco Grand Prix this year. Leclerc looks to be the biggest danger to the Red Bull pair, despite struggling behind the two Mercedes in Miami. Fernando Alonso is also likely to be close, but both challengers will need excellent qualifying sessions, given how hard overtaking is on the streets of Monaco.

Monaco Grand Prix Prediction

The Monaco Grand Prix is always a standout race on the F1 schedule. This year, we will be siding with the street specialist. We could see Perez claiming a second straight victory on the streets of Monaco to pile the pressure on his teammate in the race for the F1 Championship.
